Welcome back to the Isolation Diaries, our weekly round-up of the things that bring us joy, keep us creatively motivated and help us unwind. There’s a lot going on in the world right now, so we’ve ensured Volume 31 is full of cute, weird, and welcome distractions. Look after yourselves, friends. Got a suggestion for the Iso Diaries?

Clear Design Insolation Diaries Volume31 Reading

Always wondered what a crocodile would look like with a cat face? You’re right, absolutely nobody asked for this so of course, it exists. Speaking of DNA splicing, Margaret Atwood’s Angel Catbird has the head and ears of a cat, a set of magnificent wings, and the powers of both bird and cat. Full of cat puns, this series is a work of pure, strange genius. More of a dog person? Check out this beautiful publication by photographer Walter Chandoha.

Clear Design Insolation Diaries Volume31 Watching

Sometimes, you just want to take a break from it all because you’d rather be watching cats on the internet. For all other times, there’s Kim’s Convenience, a hilarious comedy series about a super relatable Korean Canadian family who owns and operates a convenience store. A reminder of how incredible this planet is (sometimes we need that), we will never forget the most epic escape scene from Planet Earth II.

Clear Design Insolation Diaries Volume31 Making

The idea of Exploding Kittens may not feel optimistic, but this unique game is like nothing else. It’s clever, cute and so very entertaining. Enjoy a game or two on the deck with a delicious gin and fresh cucumber cocktail and forget about the worries of today. Travel plans might still need to be postponed for a little longer, but we’re making lists of the most beautiful places on earth, dreaming of big adventures out in the world.

Clear Design Insolation Diaries Volume31 Listening

People want to be heard. If you, like us, enjoy reading one-star reviews by those with a lot of time on their hands, you’ll probably love Beach Too Sandy, Water Too Wet, a podcast that gives you the best bad reviews. Need some soulful tunes to inspire and motivate? We recommend Sound & Color by the Alabama Shakes, a modern classic. Then, sometimes all we really need is some Clear—Hope.
